Life is way more than an iPhone

Once inside the subway in Berlin some parents got my attention more than the screaming baby on their hands. The child seemed disturbed and was crying as loud as possible. Mom and dad were not worried and didn’t try anything to calm it down, until the moment the young man decides to act. He takes…

City of Light

Lyon. City of light. Of two rivers and a live experience. Who would guess that an old friend from Curitiba who studied French with me 6 years ago, and just for one semester would host me? Well, life is good, as well as it was staying with Ana Paula Delavigne and Lucien. They showed me around, I…

Thumbs up!

A flashback combined with a coincidence of (an amazing) life. I briefly mentioned the name of the girls who hosted us in Bern, but I have something more to add now. Lia Zehnder, Simone, Lea and Sheena are awesome by their hospitality, by how we played some games and shared a dinner, but I could…

Lausanne and beyond

Thun is really a hidden gem in the middle of the Alps. Forget about going to the most famous Interlaken, which is surrounded by two lakes and full of tourists. Thun is way calmer, relaxing and more beautiful. Denise shared the same qualities of the place, and we had awesome conversations, dinner and plans to…

I may sound crazy but I have to say that I feel uncomfortable with the service of more refined hotels or restaurants. I think it’s all false, driven in most cases by money and half-hearted smiles. Since my childhood I have learned at home that I should help with household chores. To put take the…

Couchsurfing, a platform that promotes accommodation in the most diverse places in the world for free, right? No! It is much more than that. After discovering the surroundings of Lake Constance with my friend Francesco Serpa, it was time to go to Switzerland, one of the most expensive countries in the world. Again with a sign…

Life is full of brilliant minds, coincidences and inspirations. After visiting my sister, it was time to leave Karlsruhe (Germany) to a city located by the Lake Constance, or Bodensee in German. The third biggest lake of Europe has its borders on the German, Swiss and Austrian sides. The rules of hitchhiking normally don’t fail…

PRETTY BUT ABANDONED

Art.  The conscious use of the imagination in the production of objects intended to be contemplated, as in the arrangement of forms, sounds, or words. It can be performed everywhere. It should be performed everywhere. Art can be seen even in the mixture of German words, that better define this place. Kinderkrankenhaus, or simply an…

GAME OF THRONES

By With 0 comments

The hype is so big around it that I cannot deny anymore. Every trip I face the same battles and challenges to get to the throne and triumph. The winter is always coming and the storm is inside myself. The white walkers are destroying the walls of my stomach, and every land has its own…

SAXON SWITZERLAND

By With 0 comments

Once I heard that people should try something new at least once a year, but I have to say I disagree. It has to be way more often than that. New experiences, feelings, tastes, it doesn’t really matter what. The idea is shaking a little bit the routine, and expand our vision and mindset. Maybe…
